Developers have no guarantees when they open source an application. In many cases, they don't know who will use it, nor do they know how things will progress. The fairy tale version is that developers will flock to the recently open sourced application and begin to work with it, immediately.
For the next interview in the fortnightly People Behind KDE series we travel to France to meet a developer who likes polishing, someone who loves to create images only to filter them out - tonight's star of People Behind KDE is Cyrille Berger.
It is my privilege to announce on behalf of the team members of the PCLinuxOS Magazine Project sponsored by MyPCLinuxOS.com, the February 2007 issue (#6) is available for download!
Earlier this week Microsoft finally shipped its Vista "Longhorn" operating system, which has been receiving a fair amount of attention from traditional media sources. However, if Windows is not your thing Fedora 7 Test 1 is now out.
Xgl is a hardware accelerated X-server created by Novell. Thanks to the abilities of modern graphics cards, it uses three-dimensional rendering, which opens up a whole new bunch of possibilities for modern computer desktops.
Since the release cycle is halfway through, and since Herd 3 looks more or less “stable,” it’s probably fair to start tweaking it, and seeing how it responds.
Ever wondered how that first down stripe worked? Ars takes a look at some of the technology that goes into the most-watched television broadcast in the US.
When Novell and Microsoft announced their unlikely partnership, a part of the arrangement that got little attention at the time was that they'd create a joint research facility, where both company's technical experts would collaborate on new joint software solutions. Now, they're staffing up.

Wondering what the Oracle announcement of Unbreakable Linux has done for Oracle, and to Red Hat? The results aren't pretty, but the company getting pounded might surprise you:
The BBC has announced its web TV plan will provisionally go ahead, despite concern from media watchdog Ofcom over how the launch would affect the UK's commercial telly.

The history of computing is the history of entrepreneurs. Open source does not have any big time entrepreneurs. Its visionaries, like Linus Torvalds, Bruce Perens and Richard Stallman, sit outside the corporate culture. Open source is not designed to create kingdoms, but democracies.
David Plain, Practice Manager for Novell in Scotland, believes that 2007 will be the year open source software proves its commercial viability in the wider marketplace.
The U.S. Code is the operating system of our system of government, the line-by-line instructions that govern our federal government. The code contains provisions for pretty much everything you can think of and lots of stuff that causes wonderment about its inclusion. But, if you search the U.S. Code for the phrase “open source” you’re not going to find anything.
Quite some time ago I was searching for the possibility to have a server side storage for documents, and to work on them together with others. Sure, in principal you can realize that with KOffice and kparts where you access and store all data over ssh on a server.
